Pilot solar power project for Cochin airport

The Cochin International Airport Limited is planning to install a solar photovoltaic power system at the terminal building this year. An agency experienced in designing and commissioning of solar PV system will be entrusted with the task of setting up a pilot project having 100 Kwp capacity.

The plan is to set up the rooftop system to be connected to the existing power grid, so as to reduce the electricity consumption at the airport. The project will be studied prior to the initiation of a higher capacity solar energy generation project proposed to be installed at the car park area and available roof top area of the buildings.

The agency will be asked to conduct solar mapping for the airport premises. It will have to prepare a detailed project report and also suggest an appropriate model for implementation of the project.
